Property Description

To see the beautiful town of Pienza, as in a postcard, sitting down under a big oak the most ancient of the Val d’Orcia, you have to stay in the farmhouse “Le Fontanelle”, a beautiful country house not so far from the medieval town Monticchiello. Le Fontanelle is located in the spectacular countryside of the Orcia valley, which has been renowned since the end of the first millennium as an important stage on the Via Francigena, the great medieval pilgrimage road from France to Rome. Le Fontanelle was peasants’ house in ruins when it was discovered by the Gonzi family, its current owners. Ideal for a luxury holiday combined with great hospitality and gastronomy. They have renovated other farmhouses, so the same attention to detail and all the lessons learned from previous renovations have been used in this last restoration, finished in 2003: original stone and bricks, terracotta flooring, antiques and Tuscan wooden furniture.


The extensive lawn is mainly grass to maintain the open space of the valley and not to restrict the view around the farmhouse. Terracotta pots with geraniums, wild roses and bushes of lavender and rosemary create a beautiful frame around the pool ( 5.15mx 15m h. 90cm a 1.70 cm). The large swimming pool is part of a landscaped terrace looking out over the countryside: it lies next to the villa from where guests can enjoy a spectacular view. Here guests can enjoy a long swim or simply relax poolside. All around tables and lounge chairs transform the area into a veritable outdoor salon, suitable for sun-bathing, conversing, cocktails or just spending time with family and friends. The covered dining space with fireplace, pizza oven, barbeque, table and chairs will let guests enjoy unforgettable Tuscan sunsets.

Special Needs Accomodations

We believe in the inherent value and uniqueness of every child or family member. We are committed to organizing an unforgettable dream vacation with warm, nurturing, and inclusive environments where all children and family members, including those with special needs or disabilities, can thrive. Our specialty trained staff works closely with the owners of the villas to find the best situation for you and your family.

Accommodations

In restoring the structure as a comfortable vacation house of exceptional character, the owners’ main aim was to respect the original features of the building. Rooms with wooden-beamed ceilings are well sized and open to the most beautiful views of the valley, with wheat fields, olive groves and cypress trees.


The Gonzi family respected the traditional structure of the farmhouse and kept the house divided into two independent units: the ground level, once the stables, which can accommodate ten people, and the top level, where the peasants used to live, which sleeps four more people. As a result, Le Fontanelle is the perfect setting for family reunions or groups of friends looking for an “oasis” of tranquillity, surrounded by art and culture.
